Magnificently hand painted French Limoges cake plate with double gold handles. Very fine quality painting with roses in pink, mauve and yellow trailing all around and up and down the piece, with graceful green leaves and tiny thorns along the stems, all painted entirely by hand by the artist against a lovely blue background. The plate is marked T&V, Limoges, France, for the French porcelain manufactory of Tressemann and Vogt of Limoges, France, who used this mark from 1892-1907. The plate measures almost 11" from handle to handle, and without the handles included the plate has a diameter of 10". The piece is in excellent condition with barely a hint of gold wear, and I can't say enough about the quality of the painting, it is superb. The roses are quite large and exquisitely detailed.
